Tteiv  £%a, 

The  thirtieth  year  of  Gulf  Park 
began  a  new  era  in  the  school's  his- 
tory. A  new  president,  Dr.  Charles 
P.  Hogarth,  was  inaugurated  at  the 
opening  exercises  on  Wednesday 
evening,  September  13,  in  the  Audi- 

Mr.  Harold  R.  Barber,  Chairman 
of  the  Board,  gave  an  address  of  ap- 
preciation to  the  second  president 
of  Gulf  Park,  and  formally  present- 
ed to  him  the  official  College  seal. 

After  Dr.  Hogarth  had  made  a 
brief  response,  he  then  introduced 
Miss  Lewis  who  sang  Come  Again, 
by  Dowland,  and  A  Heart  That's 
Free,  by  Robyn. 

Dr.  Hogarth  introduced  to  the 
student  body  the  ministers  from  the 
coast  who  were  present,  the  mem- 
bers of  the  board,  and  the  new  per- 

Dr.  Cox,  the  first  president  of 
Gulf  Park  College,  responded  with 
a  short  review  of  the  past  history  of 
Gulf  Park.  Mrs.  Cox  also  spoke,  as 
retiring  Dean  of  Residence,  and  ex- 
pressed her  devotion  to  the  College 
and  to  all  Gulf  Park  girls. 

Dr.  Hogarth  continued  with  a 
short,  meaningful  address  as  the 
newly  inaugurated  president.  The 
exercises  were  brought  to  a  close 
by  the  singing  of  America  the  Beau- 
tiful, after  which  Father  O'Malley  of 
St.  Thomas  Catholic  Church,  Long 
Beach,  gave   the  benediction. 

On  the  following  evening,  Thurs- 
day, September  14,  a  formal  recep- 
tion honoring  new  personnel  and 
new  students  was  held  in  the  Re- 
ception Room  at  Hardy  Hall.  Fol- 
lowing the  reception,  the  Notre 
Dame  High  School  Orchestra  fur- 
nished music  for  dancing  in  the  audi- 
torium. Guests  at  the  dance  were 
Gulf  Coast  Military  Academy  ca- 
dets and  other  young  men  from 
along  the   coast.

Dean  Rine  has  replaced  Mrs. 
Featherstone  as  Dean  of  Students. 
Mrs.  Featherstone  resigned  because 
of  illness.  Mrs.  Rine  has  been  assist- 
ant Dean  of  Students  for  the  past 
several  years,  as  well  as  filling  the 
position  of  Head  Hostess  in  Hardy 
Hall.  Those  who  know  Dean  Rine 
as  "Mama"  Rine  on  the  second  floor 
of  Hardy  Hall  know  there  is  no 
question  of  her  ability  to  fill  her 
new  position  on  the  campus.  Her 
popularity  with  the  girls  while  she 
was  in  her  second  floor  office  has 
followed  her  right  downstairs  to  her 
office  in  the  Reception  Room.  "Her" 
Seniors  miss  her  on  their  halls,  but 
realize  that  she  is  playing  an  even 
bigger  part  at  Gulf  Park.

President  Hogarth  explained  a  sheet  of  paper  distributed  to  the  students, 
entitled  Suggestions  for  Improving  Study  Habits.  He  emphasized  the 
importance,  for  the  greatest  happiness  at  Gulf  Park,  of  following  the 


Dean  Hatcher  spoke  on  Interesting  Points  Along  The  Coast.  She  told 
of  the  many  scenic  and  historic  spots  found  near  Gulf  Park. 


Growirig  Up  was  Miss  Crighton's  subject  for  the  morning  assembly. 
Suggestions  were  given  on  how  to  get  along  in  college  and  how  to  make 
the  adjustments  necessary  to  succeed  on  the  campus. 


Following  the  hymn,  Follow  The  Gleam,  the  Y-Cabinet  program  was 
opened  with  the  devotional  by  Witty  Garth.  Carolyn  Davis  then  spoke 
on  the  Religious  Activities,  Elizabeth  Grisso  on  the  Social  Activities, 
and  Peggy  Davis  on  the  Business  Activities  of  the  Y-Cabinet. 


Mr.  Cooke  gave  an  interesting  talk  on  Plant  Life  On  The  Campus.  He 
showed  the  students  and  members  of  the  faculty  a  specimen  of  each 
type  found  here  and  gave  a  brief  sketch  of  its  origin  and  history. 


Song  sheets  were  passed  out  to  the  students,  and  Miss  Lewis  led  the 
student  body  in  the  singing  of  Gulf  Park  songs. 


The  Y-Cabinet  election  was  held  followed  by  a  short  talk  on  current 
events  by  Mr.  Burtchael.  He  brought  the  students  up  to  date  on  the 
Korean  War  news  and  other  current  world  affairs. 


The  October  16  issue  of  LIFE 
Magazine  published  five  pages  of 
pictures  in  color  of  Gulf  Park  Col- 
lege. This  was  the  result  of  the 
work  that  was  done  for  a  period  of 
one  week  by  photographer,  Phillipe 
Halsman  and  writer,  George  Harris 
of  the  LIFE  Magazine  staff.  The 
October  16  issue  of  LIFE  Magazine 
was  a  special  issue  on  Education.  It 
was  somewhat  critical  of  many 
phases  of  education  but  if  referred 
to  Gulf  Park  as  "one  of  the  good 
things  that  exist  in  United  States 
education".  It  referred  to  Gulf  Park 
as  "a  junior  college  that  teaches  girls 
to  be  feminine  rather  than  feminist". 

The  November  6  issue  of  LIFE 
Magazine  published  a  picture  of  the 
entire  Gulf  Park  student  body  read- 
ing copies  of  the  October  16  issue 
of  LIFE  Magazine.  The  picture  was 
accompanied  by  a  part  of  the  letter 
written  to  LIFE  by  TAMMY 
HOWL  Editor-in-Chief,  Ann  Yates. 
LIFE  Magazine  did  not  publish  the 
part  of  the  letter  which  stated  that, 
in  addition  to  the  emphasis  made  by 
the  story  of  Gulf  Park  in  the  Oc- 
tober 16  issue,  Gulf  Park  empha- 
sizes scholastic   achievement. 

G.  P.  C.  DPEN  HOUSE 

Saturday  night,  October  30,  the 
new  students  of  Gulf  Park  held  an 
informal  open  house. 

Invitations  were  sent  to  young 
men  from  Gulfport,  Long  Beach 
and  Keesler  Field.  As  the  boys  en- 
tered the  Auditorium,  they  were 
greeted  by  President  and  Mrs.  Ho- 
garth in  the  receiving  line  and  then 
werfe  introduced  to  their  partners 
for  the  evening.  A  local  orchestra 
was  provided  for  dancing.  Punch 
and  cookies  were  served  on  the  front 
lawn  by  the  Wishing  Well  Foun- 

G.  C  M.  A.  DPEN  HDUSE 

The  cadets  at  Gulf  Coast  Military 
Academy  entertained  on  Saturday 
evening,  October  14,  with  an  in- 
formal open  house.  Many  High 
School  girls  and  Juniors  attended. 
Those  who  went  reported  a  most  en- 
joyable evening  of  dancing.  This  was 
the  first  of  many  G.C.M.A.  dances 
and  parties  that  will  be  held  through- 
out the  year.  There  will  be  other 
evenings  at  the  Academy  for  the 
Gulf  Park  girls  to  look  forward  to. 


The  friendliness  and  hospitality  of 
the  various  Gulfport  churches  has 
once  again  been  expressed  through 
the  annual  church  teas. 

On  Sunday,  September  thirtieth, 
the  Episcopal,  Roman  Catholic, 
Christian,  Lutheran,  and  Methodist 
teas  were  held.  The  Presbyterian  tea 
was  given  on  October  second,  and 
the  Baptist  on  October  sixteenth. 

On  these  three  days  the  Gulf  Park 
driveway  was  lined  with  cars  driven 
to  the  college  by  church  members. 
These  cars  took  the  girls  to  the  dif- 
ferent teas  which  were  given  either 
in  church  social  rooms  or  in  homes 
of  church  members.  Refreshments 
were  served  and  the  girls  became 
acquainted  with  boys  from  Gulf 
Coast  Military  Academy  and  local 
members  of  the  churches. 

This  act  of  welcoming  Gulf  Park 
students  into  the  Gulfport  churches 
is  deeply  appreciated  and  enjoyed 
by  each  girl  and  looked  forward  to 
for  the  next  year. 



Representatives  of  Gulf  Park  Col- 
lege arrived  Monday  to  visit  at  the 
college  and  get  acquainted  with  the 
faculty  and  students.  The  five  repre- 
sentatives stayed  at  Huckleberry 
Hill.  They  were  entertained  after 
dinner  on  October  3,  at  a  dessert 

Each  representative  met  with  the 
girls  from  her  area  of  the  United 
States  for  a  renewal  of  acquaintance. 
Mrs.  Laughlin,  of  Sea  Island,  Geor- 
gia, met  in  the  Reception  Room  with 
the  students  from  the  southeastern 
area;  Mrs.  Harris,  Blackwater,  Mo., 
and  Miss  James,  Kansas  City,  Mo., 
met  in  the  Junior  sunparlor  with 
students  from  the  northwestern  part 
of  the  United  States;  Miss  Haile, 
Danville,  Va.,  in  the  Art  Studio  with 
students  from  the  southwest;  and 
Mrs.  Asper,  Nashville,  Tennessee, 
in  the  Senior  smoker  with  students 
from   the  northeast. 

On  October  4,  coffee  was  served 
after  dinner  in  the  Reception  Room 
of  Hardy  Hall  for  a  meeting  of  the 
representatives  with  the  faculty.  Mrs. 
Hogarth,  Dr.  Hogarth's  mother, 
poured  coffee. 




On  Tuesday  evening,  October  17. 
the  rushees  entered  the  Delta  Alpha 
forest  in  the  Y-Hut.  As  they  were 
seating  themselves  on  imaginary 
logs,  stumps,  and  toadstools,  they 
heard  Donna  Brown,  the  Narrator, 
telling  them  that  it  was  in  this  forest 
that  a  modern  "Little  Red  Riding 
Hood"  was  going  through  her  trib- 
ulations. The  curtain  opened  and 
in  skipped  Red  Riding  Hood,  Jean 
Weidmann,  who  felt  so  good  that 
she  danced. 

While  she  relaxed  by  drinking  a 
coke,  two  wolves,  Marilyn  Smith 
and  Zeta  Lundell,  appeared  and  in- 
quired whether  Red  Riding  Hood 
had  joined  one  of  the  forest's  soror- 
ities or  not.  Each  wolf  wanted  the 
little  girl  to  join  his  girl's  sorority, 
which  put  "Red  Riding  Hood"  in 
a  predicament.  So  blue  did  she  get 
pondering  over  what  to  do,  that 
her  cape  and  hood  turned  a  dull 
blue.  Of  course,  Grandmother,  Mary 
Moughon,  would  have  the  answer; 
therefore,  Red  Riding  Hood  picked 
up  her  basket  filled  with  Hadacol, 
Coco-Cola,  and  vitamin  pills  and 
made  her  way  to  Grandmother's 

Ann  Haskins,  the  maid,  explained 
to  Red  Riding  Hood  about  Grand- 
mother's psychological  illness.  After 
Red  had  escaped  from  being  eaten 
by  Grandmother  by  repeating  "Del- 
ta Alpha",  Grandmother  told  her 
how  she  reformed  and  became  a 
Delta  Alpha  member.  Then  Eliza- 
beth Darst  danced  right  into  Grand- 
mother's memories.  Margaret  Brig- 
nac  and  La  Lou  Driver  gave  their 
rendition  of  Oh  Say  Delta  Alpha. 
More  dance  entertainment  came 
when  Edna  Maybin  Hewes  tapped 
into  the  show.  Then  came  the  pic- 
ture that  Grandmother  never  could 
forget — "The  Delta  Alpha  Girl," 
Roser.iary  Johnson.  All  the  people 
in  the  forest  sang  the  sorority  song, 
Delta  Alpha  Girl.  Red  Riding  Hood 
now  knew  that  it  was  Delta  Alpha 
for  her.  The  entire  cast  then  sang 
Delta  Alpha,  Delta  Alpha  as  the 
closing  number. 

Party  cakes  and  cokes  were  served 
as  refreshments.  Miniature  Coke 
bottles  tied  with  yellow  ribbons 
bearing  the  sorority  name  were  given 
to  the  rushees  as  favors. 

The  Y-Hut  was  turned  into  a 
night  club  on  the  evening  of  October 
15,  when  Sigma  Psi  Iota  sorority  en- 
tertained their  rushees.  The  setting 
for  the  show  was  beautiful  Club 
Sigma  Psi  back   in  the  twenties. 

Narrator,  Jody  Hickman,  opened 
the  show  with  an  introduction  of  the 
Master  of  Ceremony,  Laura  Lee 
Planche.  The  story  of  how  the  Shiek, 
Cynthia  Graser,  was  searching  for 
"It"  was  revealed,  and  the  Sheik 
himself  appeared.  A  singer,  Lynn 
Smythe,  was  the  first  to  try  to  im- 
press him  with  her  rendition  of 
Charlie,  My  Boy.  The  dancers,  Kitty 
Akard  and  Mary  Margaret  Culliney, 
then  tried  their  luck  doing  that  cur- 
rent dance  rage,  The  Charleston.  An 
Arabian  beauty,  Meme  Frenkle,  then 
took  the  spotlight  with  an  excellent 
rendition  of  her  own  native  dance. 
The  "Lady  in  Red,"  Liz  Emerson, 
left  everyone  breathless  with  the 
singing  of  Toot  Toot  Tootsie,  Good- 
bye. After  Patsy  Planche,  "The 
Little  Girl,"  gave  her  opinion  on 
"It,"  Jinx  Paterson  and  Patsy  Mc- 
Millin  sang  Prune  Song.  Rosalie  Me- 
luney  accompanied  them  on  the  uke. 
The  climax  of  the  show  was  reached 
with  the  discovery  of  "It,"  Jane  Rob- 
inson, who  looked  beautiful  in  a 
silver  sequined  dress  that  was, 
naturally,  of  the  twenties'  style.  The 
entire  cast  then  joined  in  the  sing- 
ing of  Sigma  Psi  songs. 

The  charming  flapper  cigarette 
girls,  Helen  Dally  and  Cynthia 
Scott,  assisted  in  serving  the  deli- 
cious refreshments  of  sherbert  and 
ginger  ale,  cookies  and  candy.  Min- 
iature beer  bottle  salt  shakers  with 
the  Greek  sorority  letters  on  them 
were  given  as  favors. 


The  "Twenties"  costumes  seen  in 
the  picture  of  the  Sigma  Psi  skit 
are  not  merely  copies  or  thrown  to- 
gether outfits;  most  of  the  flappers 
are  wearing  originals!  These  dresses 
with  the  longer  waistlines  and 
shorter  hemlines  came  to  entertain- 
ers in  Club  Sigma  Psi  directly  from 
the  days  of  the  "Charleston"  and 
"It."  Some  of  the  mothers  of  these 
Gulf  Park  girls  went  through  attics 
and  old  trunks  and  came  out  with 
the  dresses  they  wore  to  their  Senior 
Prom  or  the  going-away  suits  they 
wore  to  Niagara. 

"The  Merry  Land  of  Snow  Folk" 
was  the  theme  used  by  the  Delta 
Chi's  in  their  annual  rush  party 
given  in  the  Y-Hut  on  October   16. 

Rushees  were  greeted  at  the  Hut 
door  by  a  huge  snowman  adorned 
in  cape  and  hat.  Upon  entering  the 
Hut,  all  were  given  cigarettes 
by  Fran  Farrell  and  Anita  Cofer. 

Before  a  black  curtain,  decorated 
with  glistening  snowflakes,  Narra- 
tor Isabelle  Charnock  proceeded  to 
relate  why  she,  as  a  young  girl,  de- 
cided to  join  Delta  Chi. 

Witty  Garth  portrayed  Isabelle  in 
her  youth  as  the  rushee  who,  in  a 
dream,  visited  "Snowland."  As 
Witty  entered  the  Hut,  she  noticed 
two  snowballs  and  sat  down  to  rest 
on  one.  However,  the  snowballs 
were  proved  to  be  human,  and 
quickly  explained  to  Witty  where 
she  was.  They  led  her  to  meet  their 
parents,  a  snowman  and  snow- 
woman.  While  they  were  talking, 
Jack  Frost  appeared  from  behind 
the  closed  curtain  and  invited  Wittv 
to  come  into  the  castle  and  meet  the 
"Queen  of  Snowland"  and  her  court. 

The  curtain  then  opened,  reveal- 
ing to  the  audience  a  throne  room 
of  glistening  white,  in  which  were 
the  Queen  and  court,  who  insisted 
that  Witty  sit  with  them  and  meet 
the  rest  of  the  Delta  Chis.  This  was 
accomplished,  and  the  first  of  a  se- 
ries of  entertainment  began  when 
two  polar  bears  entered,  dancing. 
Then  a  penquin  ran  in,  and  in  an 
excited  voice  proclaimed  that  two 
insane  raindrops  had  gotten  loose 
and  were  on  their  way  to  the  snow 
castle.  Soon  the  raindrops  appeared 
and  gave  their  version  of  Way  Down 
Yonder  Where  the  Devil  Rules. 
Reindeer  guards  removed  the  rain- 
drops forcefully  from  the  stage,  and 
the  Queen,  Anne  Singer,  summoned 
six  dancers  who  performed,  accom- 
panied by  flutist,  Judy  Thompson. 
The  skit  closed  with  the  singing  of 
For  It's   You  Delta  Chi. 

While  coconut  covered  cakes  and 
lime  sherbert  punch  were  then  served 
to  the  rushees,  the  Delta  Chi  fa- 
vors, stuffed  snowwomen  embossed 
with  the  letters  of  Delta  Chi,  were 





Ship  Ahoy,  Yes,  the  entire  stu- 
dent body  went  "nautical"  on  Mon- 
day, September  18,  when  an  all  day 
trip  was  made  to  Ship  Island.  Sail- 
or caps  and  jeans  were  rumaged 
from  drawers  and  put  into  very  ac- 
tive use.  It  all  began  with  an  hour's 
voyage  out  into  the  Gulf  on  two 
excursion  boats.  On  reaching  the  is- 
land itself,  our  eager  seamen  dashed 
to  the  luxurious  white  sand  beach 
with  its  salty  rolling  waves.  When 
lunch  time  came,  all  were  more  than 
ready  for  the  fried  chicken  picnic. 

Naturally  a  short  siesta  seemed 
in  order  then,  but  some  more  active 
ones  just  could  not  resist  explor- 
ing the  historic  old  Spanish  Fort 
Massachusetts.  Soon  the  damp  dun- 
geons made  the  bright  sunlight  out- 
side too  inviting  and  another  swim- 
ming-sunning session  was  begun. 
But,  as  they  say,  all  good  things  must 
come  to  an  end,  and  so  it  was  with 
our  day  at  Ship  Island.  Looking 
back,  we  can  count  up  our  gains  as 
being:  one  day  full  of  fun,  a  real 
swim  in  the  Gulf,  and  a  suntan  to 
write  home  about. 


At  8:30  a.m.,  on  September  25, 
chartered  busses  arrived  in  front  of 
Hardy  Hall  to  take  the  entire  stu- 
dent body  and  faculty  members  to 
Huckleberry  Hill  for  the  day. 

Bridge  games  began  on  arriving. 
The  more  energetic  girls  went  boat- 
ing on  the  bayou  or  played  volley 

The  lunch  bell  rang  at  12:00;  we 
were  served  a  delicious  outdoor 
meal  consisting  of  hamburgers,  bak- 
ed beans,  salad,  cookies,  and  ice 

Later  in  the  day  there  were  inter- 
class  volley  ball  games,  followed  by 
a  game  between  the  Faculty  and 
Seniors.  Their  game  had  just  got 
under  way  when  it  was  interrupted 
by  screams  for  help — the  woods 
were  on  fire!  With  the  girls'  cooper- 
ation, the  fire  was  under  control  in 
a  few  minutes  with  little  damage 
and  no  casualties. 

After  the  game  was  finished,  the 
Seniors  being  the  victors,  we  return- 
ed to  school  with  happy  hearts  and 
high  hopes  of  visiting  Huck  again. 

SHDW  TIME  AT  G.  P.  C. 

Sing  Song,  May  Day — all  these 
activities  take  talent.  But  how  does 
the  school  find  out  who  can  do  what, 
when  there  are  so  many  new  faces 
on  the  campus?  Well,  what  Gulf 
Park  does  is  to  hold  a  Talent  Night, 
such  as  it  did  on  Saturday,  Septem- 
ber 23.  Each  class  solicited  its  own 
contestants  and  worked  up  skits; 
then  on  the  crucial  night  all  the  ef- 
forts were  melded  together  into  one 
terrific  show.  We  are  proud  to  say 
that  this  year's  was  one  of  the  mosc 
successful  Talent  Nights  that  G.P.C. 
has  ever  had;  so  it  looks  as  if  this 
is  going  to  be  a  very  "talent-ful" 


On  September  17,  at  2:30  p.m., 
cars  began  arriving  to  take  Gulf 
Park  students  and  faculty  members 
on  a  tour  of  the  coast.  Many  scenic 
and  historic  places  between  Gulfport 
and  Biloxi  were  pointed  out  to  the 

During  the  afternoon,  a  tea  was 
given  by  Mr.  and  Mrs.  Lawrence 
Taylor  at  The  Town  House.  The 
first  Sunday  at  Gulf  Park  was  thus 
very    enjoyable  for    everyone. 


Miss  Lewis,  voice  teacher  at  Gulf 
Park  and  daughter  of  Mr.  and  Mrs. 
Richard  Henry  Lewis  of  Greens- 
boro, North  Carolina,  was  married 
on  September  24,  at  8:30  p.m.,  in 
the  chapel  at  Keesler  Field  to  Chap- 
lain Kalman  L.  Levitan,  of  the  Air 
Force  Chaplain's  Corps,  son  of  Mr. 
and  Mrs.  Abraham  Levitan  of  Mi- 
ami, Florida.  Rabbi  Solomon  Cher- 
nick  of  Mobile,  Alabama,  conducted 
the  ceremony. 

The  bridal  couple  was  attended 
by  Miss  Dacia  Lewis  of  Greensboro 
and  Ashville,  North  Carolina,  sister 
of  the  bride,  and  Chaplain  Joseph  C. 
Sidec,  Air  Force.  Music  was  furnish- 
ed by  Miss  MacDonough,  piano 
teacher  at  Gulf  Park,  and  Mrs. 
Robert  W.  Rudolph  of  Stonebaro, 
Pennsylvania,  sister  of  the  bride. 
The  chapel  was  decorated  in  tradi- 
tional  green  and  white. 

The  bride  wore  a  white  velveteen 
dress  of  afternoon  length,  designed 
with  cap  sleeves.  The  low  neckline 
was  embroidered  in  seed  pearls  and 
pastel  sequins,  as  were  the  short 
mitts  of  velveteen.  Miss  Lewis  car- 
ried a  bouquet  of  fleurs  d'amour 
and   tuberoses. 


On  Wednesday  night,  September 
27,  the  Gulf  Park  faculty  was  hon- 
ored at  the  first  banquet  of  the  year. 
Dr.  and  Mrs.  Hogarth,  followed  by 
Mr.  and  Mrs.  Cooke,  led  the  faculty 
members  into  the  Dining  Hall.  Af- 
ter the  delicious  main  course,  Dr. 
Hogarth  offered  a  toast  from  the 
students  to  the  faculty,  expressing 
their  affection  and  their  desire  to 

The  Senior  Class  was  honored  at 
a  formal  banquet  in  the  school  din- 
ing room  on  the  evening  of  October 
11.  The  class  officers  with  Dr.  and 
Mrs.  Hogarth,  followed  by  the  re- 
mainder of  the  class,  formed  the 
line  into  the  dining  room.  During 
the  course  of  the  dinner,  Dr.  Ho- 
garth introduced  Miss  Picking,  who 
gave  a  toast  to  the  class.  Miss  Pick- 
ing has  been  the  Senior  Sponsor  for 
the  last  three  years.  The  lovely  ban- 
quet came  to  a  close  with  the  singing 
of  the  Gulf  Park   Alma  Mater. 


On  Monday,  October  9,  the  Coast 
Club  of  Gulf  Park  had  its  annual  pic- 
nic at  Sunkist  Lodge.  Girls  from  the 
boarding  department  were  invited 
as  guests  of  the  day  students  from 
along  the  coast.  The  girls  enjoyed 
recreation  such  as  playing  badminton 
and  hiking  in  the  beautiful  woods 
surrounding  Sunkist.  At  noon  a  de- 
licious picnic  lunch  was  served. 

Dr.  Hogarth,  Nancy  Eva,  Dean 
Hatcher,  the  Coast  Club  sponsor, 
Mr.  Cooke,  and  Mrs.  Throgmorton 
were  guests  of  the  students  in  the 
club.  Those  members  who  attended 
were:  Claire  Bryant,  Marion  Christ, 
Dorothy  Clower,  Margalo  Dambo- 
rino,  Je'Nell  Danielson,  Frances 
Hendrick,  and  Alma  Murden. 
Boarding  students  invited  were: 
Frances  Bosserdet,  Peggy  Dierks, 
Mary  Jane  Johnson,  Janet  King, 
Roslie  Meluney,  Sherry  Mitchell, 
Jane  Richard,  Cecelia  Samaha,  Sally 
Shultz,  Lynn  Smythe,  Lois  Stitt, 
Phyllis  Williams,  and  Judy  Young- 


LETTERS   TD  THE   STUDENTS      Attention  High  School! 


Dear  Students, 

Have  you  joined  the  peroxide 
gang  yet?  Remember,  that  can  lead 
to  peroxidalism,  a  condition  far  more 
dangerous  than  alcoholism.  For  de- 
tails on  how  to  become  a  member, 
consult  Brooksie  Carnes,  Patty  Mc- 
Millian,  or  Rosemary  Johnson. 
Speaking  of  the  big  brown  bottle, 
(peroxide  to  all  you  innocents), 
Minnie  would  like  to  pose  a  ques- 
tion, Delores  Gradoo,  is  orange  the 
voguish  look  for  hair  these  days? 

Oho,  Pat  Walker  and  Harriet  Ep- 
pes,  is  there  any  truth  in  the  rumor 
that  Harriet  and  Dil  are  Pinned? 
Really,  Harriet,  this  could  cause  un- 
told jealously  among  the  student 
body.  And  Pat,  what  is  all  this  about 
the  "Ideal  Girl?"  I  fear  many  friend- 
ships are  being  broken  up  due  to 
the  increase  in  head  size  by  those 
who  have  been  elected  ideals.  , 

Dear  Housemothers, 

If  in  doubt — Dierks  and  Shultz 
did  it — who  else?  And  while  speak- 
ing of  housemothers,  Minnie  would 
like  to  ask — how  can  a  person  be 
asleep  and  prowl  at  the  same  time? 
For  an  answer,  consult  Mary  Moug- 

Dear  Kitty,  Anita,  Rosie,  and  Jane, 
A  question  about  accoustics.  How 
is  it  that  noise  proven  to  originate 
on  Junior  Hall  always  ends  up  com- 
ing from  rooms  3  and  5  SENIOR 
HALL?  Only  Mrs.  Roter  has  the 
answer.  By  the  way,  Rosie,  that  was 
a  marvelous  toast  you  gave  at  the 
Senior  Banquet.  The  only  trouble — 
it  was  way  too  long. 

How  old  is  "The  Body?"  After 
seven  years  of  dancing,  eight  years 
of  radio,  seven  years  of  art,  and 
three  or  four  years  of  television,  she 
must  be  at  least  twenty-five.  Isn't 
that  rather  aged  for  a  High  School 

Question  of  the  Month: 

Who  is  Delores  Gradoo?  She  is 
enrolled  in  every  class  on  campus 
including  Senior  English  and  rid- 
ing. Delores,  it  is  rumored,  also,  had 
a  marvelous  time  in  New  Orleans 
one  Monday.  Just  what  did  you  do, 

Kitty,  Grace,  and  Jinx, 

You  seem  to  think  Mobile,  Ath- 
ens, and  New  Orleans  have  a  fatal 
attraction.  Question — what  do  these 
places  have  that  Gulf  port  hasn't? 

Dear  Seniors, 

"Party  madly"  will  be  the  pass 
word  after  Christmas  if  Helen  Dally 
and  Cynthia  Scott  return  weighed 
down  by  a  round  band  bearing  a 
diamond — engagement  ring  to  the 
less  informed.  Along  this  line — Bou- 
let,  whose  blue  convertible  has  been 
slinking  around  the  campus  lately? 

News  of  the  month: 

What  is  this  about  M.  J.  Johnson's 
newest  athletic  accomplishment? 
Minnie  hears  she  "pole-vaulted"  in- 
to the  Senior  Smoker  one  day. 

Dear   Editor, 

After  reading  the  October  six- 
teenth issue  of  Life  Magazine,  the 
members  of  Tent  Six  have  decided 
that  your  school  is  the  area  we  would 
like  most  to  be  restricted  to. 

The  series  of  Gulf  Park  By-the-Sea 
now  decks  the  walls  above  each 
bunk  in  our  tent. 

We  would  appreciate  an  issue  of 
the  paper  and  any  correspondence 
from  the  members  of  your  school.

Dear  Editor, 

Gulf  Park  College  has  completely 
taken  us! 

Since  one  of  us  has  a  sister  at 
Gulf  Park,  we  have  heard  much 
about  the  college,  but  not  until  your 
most  charming  article  in  LIFE 
MAGAZINE  did  we  see  how  lovely 
your  school  and  the  girls  are. 

The  article  alone  was  not  enough. 
From  the  moment  our  eyes  first  fell 
on  the  pictures  we  knew  that  we 
must  see  this  for  ourselves.  Soon  we 
visited  the  college  with  its  magnolia 
blossoms,  cape  jasmine,  and  most 
charming  Southern  belles  and  were 
definitely  fascinated  by   it. 

Gulf  Park's  beauty  was  not  its 
only  outstanding  feature.  The  hos- 
pitality of  the  school  and  the  girls 
astounded  us.  When  we  drove  up 
in  front  of  the  school  the  girls  waved 
to  us  from  the  smoker  windows  and 
later  we  had  a  short  but  nice  visit  in 
the  Senior  smoker. 

We  are  writing  this  letter  to  let  the 
public  know  that  what  they  have 
seen  in  LIFE  MAGAZINE  is  not  a 
mere  fairy  tale  but  a  dream  come 
true.  This  visit  of  ours  was  most 
worthwhile  for  we  found  the  home 
of  true  charm  and  beauty  which  is 
Gulf  Park,  By-the-Sea.  We  are  anx- 
iously awaiting  our  next  leave  so 
that  we  may  make  another  short 
visit  to  "our  heaven". 

With  deepest   sincerity, 
Two  Gulf  Park  Admirers

Boating   at   Huckleberry  Hill 

Excursion  To   Ship   Island 



September  Arrival 

Gulf  Par\  Reveals  Talent 

European  Scrapboot 

At  twelve  o'clock  on  July  12,  our 
group  of  thirty  sailed  from  New 
York  along  with  fifteen  hundred 
passengers  on  the  N.I.V.,  Georgia, 
bound  for  Liverpool. 

We  received  a  program  of  events 
each  morning  on  what  was  going  to 
take  place.  I  never  shall  forget  the 
first  day  at  sea,  reading  that  there 
would  be  horse  races  at  five.  I  did 
not  want  to  miss  that — imagine 
thorough-breds  racing  around  the 
deck!  It  was  a  terrible  dissappoint- 
ment  to  find  out  that  the  game  was 
played  with  wooden  horses. 

Before  dinner  I  decided  to  take  a 
quick  shower  to  remove  the  salt 
spray,  and  did  I  receive  a  shock 
when  I  stepped  into  the  shower — 
salt  water! 

London  was  our  first  stop  where 
we  not  only  saw  many  places  of  in- 
terest but  also  met  a  few  English 
celebrities.  I  felt  like  a  queen  in  a 
Rolls  Royce  on  the  way  to  have  a 
"spot  of  tea"  with  an  English  pro- 
ducer and  his  wife  whom  a  few  of 
us  had  met  the  night  before  at  the 
Embassy  Club. 

The  name  of  their  house  was  the 
"Little  Georgian",  and  was  the 
quaintest  little  house  I  had 
ever  seen.  It  was  actually  a  "doll 
house"  nestled  in  a  bed  of  violets 
and  lilacs.  The  "doll  house"  was 
just  as  charming  as  the  numerous 
castles  and  palaces  I  saw  throughout 

When  we  arrived  at  Brussels, 
crowds  of  people  covered  the  streets 
yelling  pro  and  con  about  King  Leo- 
pold. This  revolution  against  the 
king  and  the  rioting  did  not  alarm 
me  half  so  much  as  the  discovery 
that  a  bath  cost  sixty  cents  in  Amer- 
ican money  and  that  the  shrimp  we 
had  for  dinner  was  really  snails. 

Of  all  the  European  countries  I 
visited,  Switzerland  was  my  favor- 
ite. The  snow  covered  Alps  and  ice 
blue  lakes  are  something  you  always 
hear  about  but  can  hardly  believe 
when  you  really  see  them.  One  day 
while  in  Switzerland,  five  of  us  de- 
cided to  rent  bicycles  for  the  day. 
We  cycled  to  a  nearby  village  where 
we    stopped    to    get    something   to 

drink.  After  a  most  confusing  con- 
versation with  a  man  who  spoke  only 
German,  we  found  ourselves,  bike 
and  all,  on  a  railway  cart  ascending 
one  of  the  peaks. 

Venice  was  beautiful  in  its  an- 
tiquity and  waterways.  What  amus- 
ed me  most  were  the  modern  stop- 
lights hanging  over  the  canals.  An- 
other interesting  fact  is  that  the  fire 
department  consists  of  three  motor 
boats  and  a  row  boat. 

Nice,  France,  which  is  along  the 
coast  of  the  Mediterranean  is  an  ex- 
ceptionally pretty  city.  One  thing 
we  could  not  understand  was  the 
stares  at  our  bathing  suits  we  received 
from  the  people  on  the  Riviera.  I  had 
never  before  felt  so  modest  on  the 

The  last  place  we  stopped  was 
Paris.  As  we  drove  down  the 
Champs  Elysees,  I  felt  as  if  I  were 
riding  down  the  highway  to  en- 
chantment. Night  Clubs  and  Paris 
customs  were  very  entertaining. 
However,  I  was  glad  to  get  back  to 
the  United  States,  bringing  with  me 
memories  which  I  never  shall  lose 
and  hoping  that  someday  I  may  go 
back  and  bring  these  memories  to 
life  once  again. 


I  can't  wait!  I  simply  can't  wait 
until  the  new  fall  clothes  come  out 
of  their  trunks  and  closets.  From 
all  indications  Gulf  Park  will  have 
a  bright,  big,  and  smooth  year.  Of 
course  I'm  speaking  from  a  fashion 
view-point  and  mean  bright  in  color, 
big  in  flounces  and  drapes,  and  as 
smooth  as  satin  and  velvet. 

Let  me  paint  a  modern  picture  of 
the  newest  fall  fashions  for  you.  On 
my  palet  I'll  squeeze  from  tubes 
many  different  red  paints  to  begin 
with.  I'll  start  with  the  orange  and 
go  into  rust.  Then,  of  course,  bright 
red  and  on  into  dark  red  and  ma- 
roon. After  I  have  a  few  dabs  of  the 
basic   reds    I    can    branch   into  the 

beautiful  corals,  champagne  pink, 
and  wines.  Next  I'll  add  some  of 
every  bright  color  and,  to  be  most 
fitting  and  exciting,  a  dash  of  glisten- 
ing gold  and  silver. 

Into  my  work  of  art  I'll  paint 
many  tight,  curved  lines  flattered 
with  drapes  and  flounces.  The  tex- 
ture will  be  mostly  satin  and  velvet 
with  the  exception  of  a  few  heavy 
tweed  effects.  Against  these  materials 
I'll  paint  a  rose,  a  scarf,  or  various 
accessories  in  an  outstanding  con- 

Soon  our  modern  painting  will 
come  to  life  and  appear  on  campus 
in  many  different  fashions.  For 
morning  and  afternoon  classes  we'll 
see  the  usual  sweaters  and  shirts  but 
with  a  new  touch  this  year.  That 
touch  is  done  with  bright  contrast- 
ing colors  usually  seen  in  belts, 
scarves,   and  shoes. 

In  the  afternoon  we'll  find  loung- 
ing in  the  smokers  bright  plaid  wool 
slacks  coupled  with  wool  jersey 
blouses  and  separated  by  wide  leath- 
er belts.  We'll  see  also  solid  colored 
slacks  or  pedal  pushers  beneath  large 
plaid  smoking  jackets  trimmed  with 
velvet  collars. 

For  dinner  and  early  dates  the 
campus  will  be  covered  with  color- 
ful satin  and  velvet  suits  with  off 
shades  of  red,  green,  and  blue  shoes 
and  purses.  We'll  see  also  the  solid 
and  large  plaid  wool  dresses  with 
velvet  collars,  buttons,  belts,  and 
pocket  flaps. 

We'll  dance  to  the  exciting  music 
of  an  orchestra  in  equally  exciting 
evening  dresses.  There  will  be  more 
ballerina  length  dresses  this  year 
than  before.  Still  the  velvets,  satins, 
and  nylon  nets  are  voted  most  popu- 
lar. Even  a  few  bright  plaid  taffetas 
with  wide  patent  leather  belts  will 
draw  a  spot  light.  The  golds  and 
silvers  will  be  found  in  tight,  slinky, 
and  extremely  bare  formats.  Again 
the  flashing  shoes  will  make  an  en- 
trance and  dance  their  way  into  pop- 

Yes,  I  can  hardly  wait  for  these 
exciting  fall  fashions  and  colors  to 
make  their  appearance  for  fashion 
has  finally  reached  its  peak  of  excite- 
ment and  individuality. 

Dr.  and  Mrs.  Richard  G.  Cox  are 
now  residing  in  their  new  home  at 
Edgewater  Park.  Their  post  office 
address  is  Edgewater  Park,  Missis- 
sippi, and  their  telephone  number 
4243-J,  Gulfport. 




An  important  addition  to  the  list 
of  college  personnel  is  that  of  Mrs. 
Roter,  who  has  replaced  Mrs.  Rine 
as  Head  Hostess  in  Hardy  Hall. 
Mrs.  Roter  has  come  to  us  from 
Hockaday  School  in  Dallas,  Texas. 
Two  new  hostesses  who  will  work 
with  Mrs.  Roter  in  Hardy  Hall  are 
Mrs.  Rogers  of  Washington,  D.  C, 
and  Mrs.  Lindner  of  New  York, 
New  York.  Mrs.  Howie,  who  comes 
from  Shreveport,  Louisiana,  al- 
though her  former  home  was  in 
Gulfport,  is  a  new  Lloyd  Hall  host- 
ess. Also  a  new  addition  to  Lloyd 
Hall's  group  of  hostesses  is  Mrs. 
Reynolds  of  Peoria,  Illinois. 

Mrs.  Mills,  a  new  faculty  member 
who  is  a  resident  of  Gulfport, 
teaches  Latin  and  American  His- 
tory. Miss  Morales  of  Mexico  City, 
Mexico,  teaches  both  Spanish  and 
French.  From  Detroit,  Michigan, 
comes  Miss  Benish,  the  new  head  of 
the  Department  of  the  Dance.  The 
new  Accompanist  and  Elementary 
Piano  teacher  is  Miss  Vedrenne, 
coming  to  us  from  New  Orleans, 
Louisiana.  Miss  James  of  Brazil, 
Indiana,  serves  as  the  new  Alumnae 
Secretary.  Assistant  Dietician  for 
this  year  is  Mrs.  Ray  from  Pontotoc, 
Mississippi.  Miss  Cashmore  of 
Long  Beach,  Mississippi,  is  serving 
as  Secretary  to  the  Dean  of  Students. 

New  school  Representatives  in- 
clude Mrs.  Asper,  Nashville,  Ten- 
nessee; and  Mrs.  Laughlin,  Sea  Is- 
land, Georgia. 


The  Reception  Room  has  a  new 
look.  Its  design  is  Modern  in  color 
and  texture.  Window  draperies  have 
a  huge  hybiscus  design,  red  pre- 
dominating with  green  and  slight 
touches  of  yellow  in  the  accent 

The  furniture  is  upholstered  in 
rough  Modern  texture  of  solid  col- 
lors — gold,  green,  and  red.  The  de- 
tails such  as  lamps,  vases,  and  bric- 
a-brac  are  all  harmonious  with  the 
hybiscus  colors. 

The  New  look  is  interesting  and 

Off  the  Reception  Room,  to  the 
right,  is  a  drawing  room  in  Period 
Decoration.  The  flowered  wall  pa- 
per, mahogany  secretary,  marble 
topped  chest  and  table,  rose  satin 
covered  wing  chairs,  and  rose  win- 

dow draperies  all  present  a  quiet  and 
restful  picture  in  elegant  i88o's  de- 

The  Powder  Room  opens  off  the 
drawing  room.  It  is  in  dainty  blue 
and  rose  of  contemporary  design. 

The  Dining  Hall  also  has  a  New 
look  with  outdoor  design  and  color 
in  the  draperies  of  white  with  green 
and  red  bamboo  leaves  and  natural 
color  stalks  in  natural  size.  Small 
bronze  flower  pots  of  growing  plants 
hang  from  bronze  chains  between 
the  windows.  A  large  mirror  stret- 
ches, all  the  way  across,  over  the 
sideboard,  and  a  Spanish  plaque 
hangs  over  the  cabinet.  This  New 
look  takes  the  Dining  Hall,  which 
is  amost  ground  level,  outdoors  and 
brings  the  outdoors  inside  at  the 
same  time. 

For  this  NEW  LOOK  IN  DECO- 
RATIONS, honors  go  to  Mrs.  Ho- 
garth who  worked  out  the  plan  of 
redecoration,  purchased  the  neces- 
sary materials,  and  supervised  the 



Mrs.  Hogarth  had  a  tea  in  the

Friday,  October  13,  1950,  was  a 
very  important  day  for  the  family  of

their  son  in  honor  of  both  grand- 

Mrs.  Cooke's  birthday  was  also 
celebrated  on  Friday,  and  the  third 
reason  for  special  celebration  was 
the  twenty-first  anniversary  of  Mr.

The  next  broadcast  is  scheduled  for

8:20  P.M. 

Over  the  week-end  of  October  7, 
with  Miss  Meeker  as  guide  and 
chaperon,  eight  of  us  old  girls — Isa- 
belle Charnock,  Gretchen  Bosch, 
Cynthia  Graser,  Rusty  Cramer,  Han- 
nah Snellgrove,  Patty  Hillhouse, 
Jane  Anderson,  and  Ann  Yates — 
rode  our  trusty  steeds  out  to  Huckle- 
berry Hill.  We  began  our  crusade 
at  three  o'clock  that  lovely  Saturday 
afternoon  with  high  hopes  of  hav- 
ing a  wonderful  time. 

Yes,  it  was  wonderful !  Jt  was  won- 
derful to  try  to  control  a  shying 
horse,  to  dangle  our  feet  out  of  the 
stirrups  to  keep  from  becoming  ab- 
solutely numb,  to  fight  away  mos- 
quito squadrons,  to  laugh  at  the  silly 
little  blisters  that  the  reins  rubbed 
on  our  fingers,  to  kick  and  plead 
with  our  walking  horses  while  the 
rest  of  the  party  cantered  gaily  a 
mile  or  two  ahead,  to  wave  a  friend- 
ly hand  at  honking  speed  demons 
while  we  endeavored  to  ride  along 
the  highway,  to  reply  to  Miss  Meek- 
er, "Of  course,  we're  having  fun, 
isn't  everyone?"  Yes,  it  was  won- 

At  around  five-thirty  the  cabin  on 
Huckleberry  Hill  rose  before  us  like 
a  make-believe  haven  of  rest.  We 
dismounted,  happy  to  be  at  our  des- 
tination. The  aroma  of  baking  bis- 
cuits and  strong  coffee  arose.  Our 
appetites  ran  wild  as  we  seated  our- 
selves around  the  dinner  table,  for- 
getting unwashed  hands  and  faces. 
But,  what's  that?  We  forgot  some- 
thing else?   Oh,  yes,  the  horses! 

We  crawled  away  from  the  table 
and  went  to  walk,  feed,  and  water 
our  horses.  When  they  were 
through  eating  and  drinking  and 
were  securely  tied  to  trees,  we  drag- 
gad  ourselves  again]  to  the  cabin 
where  we  found  dinner  all  ready 
for  us.  Playing  bridge,  singing,  and 
raiding  the  kitchen  followed.  Fin- 
ally came  sleep! 

Nine  o'clock  on  Sunday  morning 
found  us  bounding  out  of  bed  and 
down  to  a  delicious  breakfast  of 
fried  eggs  and  bacon.  Then  we  took 
a  morning  ride  along  the  bayou. 

Our  plans  for  returning  to  school 
were  to  leave  as  soon  after  dinner 
as  we  could  get  our  horses  saddled 
and  bridled.  This  was  hard  to  do, 
since  we  were  all  so  full  of  fried 
chicken  that  we  could  hardly  move. 
Naturally,   the   previous   rides    had 

nothing  to  do  with  this  difficulty  in 
movement!  In  silent  pain  we  sat  on 
our  horses  while  they  carried  us 
along  the  return  road.  When  Gulf 
Park  was  sighted,  we  all  felt  as  if  we 
had  crossed  the  Thirty-eight  Paral- 

As  we  put  our  horses  in  the  stable, 
Cherokee  was  heard  saying  under 
his  breath,  "Boys,  this  is  a  load  off 
my ,  uh  mind!"  Though  feel- 
ing as  if  taking  the  opposite  view- 
point, we  were  too  tired  to  debate 
the  issue.  Instead  we  merely  made 
mental  notes  like  "Unforgetable  ex- 
perience" and  "Miss  Meeker,  when 
do  we  go  again?" 


Open  House  was  held  Sunday, 
October  8,  from  two  until  three 
o'clock  in  Hardy  Hall,  Lloyd  Hall, 
and  the  Art  Studio. 

Dr.  and  Mrs.  Hogarth,  Mr.  and 
Mrs.  Cooke,  and  members  of  the 
faculty  toured  the  dormitories.  They 
visited  each  room,  commenting  on 
the  various  arrangements  and  color 

The  entire  afternoon  was  very 
enjoyable,  but  the  preceeding  night 
was  one  of  complete  confusion.  All 
of  the  girls  were  trying  to  get  their 
rooms  in  order.  Furniture  was  mov- 
ed and  curtains  were  hung  in  an 
effort  to  get  the  rooms  "dressed  up" 
for  the  inspection. 


A  number  of  students  and  mem- 
bers of  the  faculty  of  Gulf  Park  Col- 
lege attended  the  Sadler's  Wells  Bal- 
let performance  at  the  Municipal 
Auditorium  in  New  Orleans  on 
Thursday,  October  12.  On  Thursday 
afternoon  a  large  party  of  girls  and 
faculty  members  motored  by  bus  to 
New  Orleans,  where  they  enjoyed 
dinner  before  going  to  the  Audi- 
torium for  the  ballet  program.  Coffee 
and  doughnuts  at  the  French  Mar- 
ket were  the  after-theatre  refresh-

T'was  the  night  before  Rat  Week 
and  on  Senior  Hall  the  rat  masters 
gathered  to  plan  for  the  brawl: 

They  stood  'round  in  circles  and 
gloated  with  glee  as  they  thought 
up  new  tortures  for  all  rats  to  be. 

Lets  make  them  do  push-ups  and 
roll  on  the  floor,  or  run  round  the 
building  and  fall  through  the  door, 

And  then  there's  our  breakfast  that 
comes  in  the  morn,  that  has  to  be 
served  to  us  ready  and  warm. 

What  else  can  you  think  of — come 
on  lets  have  more,  Well — when 
we  yell  "Air  Raid"  have  them  hit 
the  floor. 

That's  all  good  and  proper  but  still 
not  enough,  O.  K.  then  we'll  have 
them  to  iron  all  our  stuff, 


And  count  holes  in  screen  wire  and 
straws  in  the  rug,  and  also  write 
letters,  both  friendly  and   love, 

And  then  there's  their  talent  that 
has  to  be  shown,  and  also  our  boy- 
friends who  they'll  have  to  phone. 

Then  next  comes   the   banquet  for 
which  they'll  acquire  some  clothes 
that  are  not  quite  the  proper 

And    also  the  snake  line  to    form 
round  the  room,  and  making 
them  eat  everything  with  a  spoon. 

That's  fine,  now  lets  hold  it — 

enough  is  enough, 
You've  got  your  ideas  now  go  do 

your  stuff.

Rat  Week!  Ah,  glorious  time!  Al- 
though this  may  be  the  opinion  held 
by  old  sorority  members,  quite  an- 
other could  be  expressed  by  the 
"rats",  or  new  members.  Just  to  get  a 
general  idea  of  how  "rats"  feel  to- 
ward the  subject,  the  question, 
"What  do  you  think  of  Rat  Week?" 
was  asked  to  several  sorority  pledges. 
Recorded  here  are  the  slanting  re- 

Sonny  Mays  says,  "I  only  wish  we 
Juniors  could  put  the  Seniors  through 
Rat  Week.  I'd  love  to  see  Mimi 
Frenkel  counting  holes  in  a  screen." 

Pat  Wolff  replied,  (and  here  is 
an  original  answer)  "I  wish  it  had 
lasted  longer." 

No  squeaks  came  from  the  rats 
in  room  56.  However,  others  were 
not  so  timid.  For  instance,  Diane 
Adair,  after  a  moment  of  silent  pon- 
dering, commented,  "I  would  hate 
to  express  my  feelings  on  the  sub- 

At  this  point  Sally  Evans  chimed 
in  with  a  sarcastic,  "My  rat  master 
said  I  loved  it." 

Marguerite  Wessels  replied,  "Un- 
forgettable experience !" 

Now  come  some  comments  from 
the  less  bitter  side: 

Betty  Cobb  said,  "I  liked  Rat 
Week  because  it  was  nice  to  meet 
all  the  Seniors." 

Sharing  this  viewpoint  was  Peggy 
McGowan  who  stated,  "I  did  love 
being  able  to  go  down  Senior  Hall !" 

Margie  Clayton  expressed  her 
views  by  saying,  "It  was  a  riot;  I 
wouldn't  have  missed  it.  And  I  really 
love  Air  Raids  on  a  stairway!" 

Peggy  Deirks  and  Toddy  Craw- 
ford expressed  agreement  when  they 
decided  that  it  was  all  fun,  especially 
since  one  of  them  had  such  a  kind 
rat  master. 

And  here  we  stopped  our  ques- 
tioning when  Dolly  Doiron  answer- 
ed, "All  was  grand  except  the  times 
I  was  tied  to  a  bed  and  beaten;  that 
was  worse  than  being  caught  in  a 
trap,  and  not  even  cheese  was  the 
consolation  prize!" 

T'was  the  night  after  Rat  Week 
and  on  Junior  Hall  the  rats  were 
all    haggered   and    ready  to  fall; 

They  managed  to  smile  if  you  called 
them  by  name,  but  somehow  they 
wondered  just  how  they  remained. 

Their  faces  were  long  ones — their 
knees  were  all  sore,  and  all  of 
them  felt  that  they  ached  to  the 

Are  you  glad  its  over? — just  what 
do  you  think,  I'd  like  to  throw  all 
Seniors  out  in  the  drink, 

Especially  the  ones  that  required  us 
to  crawl  from  smoker  to  smoker 
and  far  down  the  hall, 

And  run  around  the  buildings  and 
count  holes  in  screens,  and  laugh 
and  make  merry  and  act  just  like 

They  thought  it  was  funny,  but  they 
just  don't  know,  and  if  we  had 
our  way  we'd  torture  them  slow, 

We'd  make  them  do  push-ups  and 
stand  on  their  heads, 

And    servte    us   our   breakfast   and 
make  up  our  beds, 

But  now  that  its  over  it  was   kind 
of  fun, 

And  they  didn't  ask  to  have  many 
things  done, 

So  now  in  our  hearts  there  will  ever 
remain,  the  thought  of  dear  rat 
week  and  all  of  the  pain.

Though  the  purchasing  power  of  the  dollar  has 
already  dwindled,  it  is  still  the  soundest  money  on 
the  face  of  the  earth.  From  every  quarter  on  the 
globe  men  seek  American  dollars  for  what  they 
will  buy  in  the  world's  markets. 

It  may  be  argued  that  hoarding  goods  speeds  in- 
flation, but  hoarded  money,  kept  out  of  circulation, 
in  your  bank,  helps  check  it. 

The  government  threatens  to  control  prices,  wages 
and  commodities  as  well  as  credit,  should  inflation 
go  wild. 

The  best  way  to  attack  Enemy  Number  Two  is 
to  save  your  money.  It  may  shrink  in  purchasing 
power  but  as  long  as  it  speaks  with  authority  in  the 
market  place,  draws  interest,  buys  goods  and  pays 
taxes,  your  money  is  worth  saving.  Buy  only  what 
you  need,  save  what  you  can,  and  use  the  facilities 
of  this  bank  freely  to  prosper. 

It  is  not  difficult  to  identify  today's  Enemy  Number 
One.  Communism,  with  the  threat  of  a  Third 
World  War,  is  the  slippery  serpent  that  crawls  in 
and  out  from  behind  the  Iron  Curtain. 

Enemy  Number  Two  is  not  so  easily  identified,  but 
inflation  can  be  as  destructive  to  the  economy  of 
a  people  as  war  itself.  We  have  seen  the  disastrous 
results  of  it  in  France,  Italy  and  China. 

Already  there  are  federal  limitations  on  credit  and 
appeals  being  made  by  those  in  authority  for  people 
to  produce  in  abundance  and  spend  sparingly,  that 
we  might  escape  the  evils  of  inflation. 

Running  rampant,  inflation  is  as  fatal  to  a  coun- 
try's economy  as  an  army  of  grasshoppers  is  to 
a  field  of  corn.  Under  hyper-inflation,  money  loses 
its  purchasing  power,  savings  lose  their  value  and 
life  insurance  is  sapped  of  its  security.
